Last Friday, our family had a wonderful evening in front of the fireplace, stoking the fire and listening to old-fashioned records on my record player. (We did all this by candlelight! very fun!) Then my dad suggested my sister and I make a dessert--and what sounds better than 'pumpkin apple bread'? I found a recipe and simplified it for "mini loaves" or muffins. Here's the recipe:
And 1/2 cup vegetable oil.
Mix up all the ingredients!
Add 1/2 cup apple juice or cider (yum!)
As you combine the wet and dry ingredients, don't whip or stir too fast.
Chop 1 large apple, and add to batter
Now we're ready to bake!
Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full...
And bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes
And they're ready! I made 3 batches, so there were about 38 muffins. They aren't sweet like cookies, but taste like a good hearty, (flavorful!) sweet bread. This recipe makes 2 loaves as well, so following the same directions, just pour batter into 2 greased loaf pans and bake for 60-70 minutes.
